Burns White Attorneys Banking and Financial ServicesPartnering with our clients to achieve the most cost-effective results

With the industry landscape changing daily, adaptation, efficiency, and unwavering support are as important now as they have been in recent memory. To rise to meet these challenges, financial institutions — more than ever — need attorneys who understand their businesses and commit to working hand-in-hand with them to tackle their problems.

In every instance, the Burns White Banking and Financial Services Practice Group takes a business approach to serving its clients. With a substantial and enduring commitment to understanding our clients’ businesses, we strategically focus all efforts toward achieving their goals in every case.

Our attorneys possess significant civil and commercial litigation experience in state/federal courts and in private venues representing a broad range of financial institutions. This includes matters for alleged breaches of contract, disputes among partnerships and other business interests, alleged breaches of fiduciary duties, alleged conspiracy claims, claims brought pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), and other types of statutory and common law claims. In addition, we have also initiated and defended motions for temporary restraining orders, motions for preliminary and permanent injunction, and other emergency motions on behalf of various entities. Our work includes single plaintiff and putative class action cases.

Further, we represent financial institutions in all aspects of commercial financing, from structuring through documentation and closing. We handle loan workout, restructuring and collections, and loss mitigation, if necessary. Our attorneys counsel and assist institutions to cost-effectively resolve these problems and achieve the best return available. We assist with financial and managerial issues to help resolve situations quickly and effectively; to assess value; to propose solutions, structure to negotiate, and enter into the best and most cost-effective transaction available — to avoid and/or cure default. Moreover, we counsel our clients to implement the resulting operating plans.

Our clients include national banks, federal and state savings associations, state-chartered banks, community banks, and various other financial institutions. We look forward to working with you. As a strategic partner for your business, we roll up our sleeves to help so you can roll yours down.
